My first Intel build :D - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Are you planning on settings up the SSD pair in a RAID configuration or just looking for over 200 GB of SSD space? If it's just for the space, just grab a 256 GB and enjoy it, hassle free(ish; firmwarrrreeee).

I'm gonna RAID0 those 2 drives together giving me effectively only 120 GB of space right ? but read write speeds of about 1Gbps ?
please correct me if i'm wrong

Depends on the raid setup you're going for. RAID 0, basically you'll have about ~240GB to work with and it will approximately double the speed. RAID 1 will give you ~120GB and the same speed, but the data will be backed up.

There is almost no point in spending another $200+ just to RAID 1 an SSD to another. IMO, not much of point in RAID 0 either for the newer SSDs (I'm fairly certain it isn't that huge of a performance bump with RAID 0 on these things).

Hmm ? Really ? Because I remembered that maximum pc used two of the vertex 3's and they were boasting of read wrote speeds of nearly 1 Gbps ? Can anyone here actually verify their claim ? Because if not I'll save that 300 dollars and get me a entry level custom wc loop
Ps thanks for all your replies ! Can't wait to get building and clocking ! Then folding

I did a bit more research and found that the only area in which a RAID 0 config. would boost benchmark performance significantly is sequential read and possibly write. However, while benchmarks are nice, the general consensus I seemed to find can be summed up with this post: http://www.overclock.net/13416537-post24.html

Basically, you may pick up a second or two here and there (off loading times), but you will have a lot of trouble seeing a difference in day-to-day, real-world applications. Basically, if you like tinkering and benchmarks a lot, the two 120gbs may be for you, but you would be more-or-less just as well served with a single 240 GB driveHad I not exceeded my build budget, I would have gone for a high-cap., SATA III SSD rather than my budget 96Gb Kingston).

To quote infinite jest. Ah ha alright then ! I guess I shall go for one 240 GB SSD rather than two raid 0 SSDs thanks guys
